    Pros

    Great Faculty, benefits, etc. Flexible hours and holiday time through out the year for all staff.

    Cons

    Very disorganized from top down. Overload and short deadlines = burnout. Long hours with redundant tasks. Not much room for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorganize work load and hire sufficient administrative staff

    I have been working at Georgetown University full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my two years as a Fellow at Georgetown University Law Center. The contacts I made were outstanding, there were lots of opportunities to engage in all sorts of intellectual events and other social and sporting activities. The legal projects I worked on were prestigious and involved interesting travel. University has good leave policies and benefits such as gym, cheap cafeteria, good working from home policy in my unit.

    Cons

    Lack of potential to move upwards (all academic jobs like this at the moment). Academic bosses not necessarily good managers, but were well meaning.

    Pros

    Real life experience, real responsibility, awesome culture, the best people

    Cons

    technically a "non-paid" internship, which is a bummer for the amount of work done - but then again it is so worth it and you get "paid" through multiple other facets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new board is the bomb

    Staff was great, east to fit in and learn the ropes. Task aren't too difficult an the other students make the job more fun

    The only thing I would have to say is that this is not really a con but when books piled up because of exams the job was a little more difficult but manageable not the least

    I worked at Georgetown University full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, friendly and mentally stimulating work environment. Excellent professional "culture" and ideals. Good opportunities for personal, academic and professional development. Great name recognition. Good (if not great) employee benefits.

    Cons

    Salaries aren't great. Exceptionally slow bureaucracy. Workplace is very segmented and silos can be hard to coordinate across.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider improving benefits if not compensation, particularly education benefits.

    I have been working at Georgetown University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very friendly faculty members and high profile research projects

    Cons

    Very limited flexibility to design and conduct your research projects, since the principal investigator as a control freak wants you do everything as she thinks is right, without considering your opinions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being ignorant and arrogant to your fellow graduate students, be more transparent about long term plan.
